“Rosh Hashanah 5776: The Year You Will Roar”
Johnny Enlow, Santa Clarita, CA
This September 14, 2015 begins a most remarkable year on the Hebraic Calendar that will exceed the expectations of even the most optimistic Kingdom observer. Having finished three 7-year cycles (1994-2001, 2001-2008, 2008-2015 [see Rosh Hashanah 2014 word]) we now enter into the fourth and defining 7-year period, that has birthed the age of the restoration of all things (Acts 3:21), and that has released a majestic Era of Renaissance.
A pertinent Scripture for this year and for the subsequent era is Daniel 12:3, “Those who are wise will shine as bright as the sky, and those who lead many to righteousness will shine like the stars forever.” Those who are wise enough to understand the brilliance of Papa’s narrative for this day will position themselves to be able to shine as bright as the sky.
Learning to “See”
With this new year we will begin year 5776 on the Jewish calendar and we are in a 10-year window when the focus is all about “learning TO SEE”. The Hebraic numbers spell this out for us. This goes on until 5780, as the Lord upgrades us from our distorted way of perceiving things and teaches us how to see from His level and His perspective. It is a transition from seeing through the eyes of the “enemy observant, 10 spies”, and we shift into seeing through the eyes of “fruit observant, Caleb”. The 10 spies carried the seeming wisdom of studying and knowing the giants, while Caleb carried the wisdom of studying and knowing His God. (Photo via Pixabay)
The 10 spies saw through trouble-shooting lenses, while Caleb saw through treasure-hunting lenses. We are in a 10-year window where it is imperative we gain Caleb vision. Caleb vision is against our nature. It is counterintuitive. It is even “Pollyannish” (excessively optimistic). It is what is required for reformers of society who truly want to enter into their own prophetic promises. You are going to learn to trust your spirit eyes above your natural eyes and to almost automatically doubt your natural eyes. Media reports and projections will often give you clues as to the OPPOSITE of what God is really doing and as to what kingdom is actually ferociously advancing.
For example, since 9/11 of 2001, it has seemed that radical Islam has become activated and empowered as never before. The Kingdom reality is that more Muslims have encountered and embraced Jesus since 2001 than in the entire history of Islam which is well over 1000 years. This is just an example of where the mainline Media can lead you to believe the opposite of what is actually taking place. We have needed corrective lenses as to true reality, and some are ahead in the process and some are behind. We must learn to go on His reports or we will remain confused, anxious and disoriented.
